What Do Karl Lagerfeld, Rachel Bilson & Baptiste Giabiconi Have in Common?
I mean, besides daunting good looks and an awesome sense of style (obviously)? Apparently, the trio shares a love for Magnum Ice Cream. And as much as I love Rachel Bilson (hello, style icon and girl crush since her days as Summer on the “The O.C”), I couldn’t help but find the trio’s latest collab to be a “stretch”. It appears that Karl Lagerfeld isn’t just a fan of Diet Coke but has quite the sweet tooth; as he also favors Magnum Ice Cream. Lagerfeld directed the brand’s latest video in celebration of their U.S. launch. The short , titled “Photo Mood” features Bilson who plays a model and Baptiste who plays the photog (hmmm maybe channeling himself as Lagerfeld dare I say?) Don’t get me wrong, Bilson looks adorable (per usual) but Baptiste is just awkward and thus, hilarious as he really gets into the role. What can I say? His acting approach is slightly better than the one he had for his music video…Yes, Baptiste is also a pop star!
The video premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival last night and to a full house of fashion influentials including Anna Wintour. Hey who says people in the fashion industry don’t need a sweet sugar fix too? Peep the video below for more!
